Ascending Masada's Snake Path in the pre-dawn darkness is a quintessential Israel experience. Coordinated correctly, you can catch a sublime sunrise over Jordan and the Dead Sea, explore the Herodian fortress's antiquities and spend the rest of the day enjoying the Dead Sea region's many attractions.




We invite you to skip the logistical worries and simply enjoy a private tour of Masada at dawn. Groups of up to seven people can sign on for this tour, which departs Jerusalem at 4:00 and arrives at Masada in time to hike to the top by daybreak. Once there, continue with an interactive guided experience at this Second Temple-era fortress, tracing its history from a king's palace to an encampment for Jews fighting to cling to their lands and way of life.



Descend Masada in a cable car to enjoy more spectacular views of the Dead Sea, and continue touring the region. Jump into the rich history and archaeology of this area with the help of your guide, certified by Israel's Ministry of Tourism.




Tour stops can be customized to fit the specific interests of your group. Visits may include


  • The Masada Museum
  • Kibbutz Ein Gedi and its botanical gardens
  • The trails, falls and wildlife of the Ein Gedi Nature Reserve
  • A float in Dead Sea
  • Treatments at a Dead Sea spa hotel
  • The caves at Qumran, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were first discovered
  • The Ahava cosmetics factory.


The tour makes for a full day, packed with adventure and lasting 10 to 12 hours (depending on the selected itinerary).
